If you rule the Sky, then you will pick enemy tanks regardless of quality of your tanks. eg Karabagh 2020, Iraq 2003Hence freedom is in the skies. Ruling the sky would enable you to by pass pretty much many stationary hindrances
If Both side doesn't rule the Sky, We are seeing, Quantity is ruling over quality in Ukraine.
So in both Case I don't see truly cutting edge Altay is good for us. We need simpler tank that We can replace all tanks we have m48, m60, Leos. We simple wont be able afford 2000 Altay. Or At Least We need high and Low mix like US air force is trying but Instead of Aircrafts we should plan it for our Tank inventory. At most, 300-400 Altay + 1000-1500 40-45 tonnes medium tank. And Not to mention We about to have the 1000hp engine for such tank.
